Your idea
Will you launch your idea as a business or non-profit?

Non-profit

Country your work focuses on
What will be the impact of your idea? 

With a nonprofit created, and funding for web-social media, we could publicize the math, science, and environmental resources to students in the USA as well as in the British Commonwealth. Perhaps we could also encourage people to visit and learn about eco-tourism, and how the earth is alive and growing all the time.

Who will help you develop your idea? Why are you the one to make this happen?

I would work with the Montserrat Cultural Center, the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, and Montserratians living in London, Boston, New York and elsewhere to support environmental education among school children in both locations.

How much will it cost to launch your idea? (This can be an estimate)

I estimate that a travel budget of $1000 per student group (per person) and a budget of $7000 could get us started. We would start low-tech and use MVO computer links to start. Future govt. partnerships with US Geological Survey would be great too.
